Melvin Ingram up, Jacoby Jones down in Chargers' loss

BALTIMORE -- A look at San Diego Chargers players who were “up” and those who were “down” in Sunday’s 29-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens:

UP

Melvin Ingram: He had not registered a sack in three games, but Ingram finished with 1.5 sacks and six combined tackles against the Ravens.

Malcom Floyd: He finished with four catches for 92 yards, including a 9-yard catch for a score in the first half and a 70-yard reception for a touchdown that gave the Chargers a 23-16 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Philip Rivers: He didn’t put up gaudy numbers, but Rivers was efficient. Rivers finished 28-of-37 for 301 yards and three touchdown passes. Rivers completed passes to eight receivers and threw for more than 300 yards for the fifth game in a row.

DOWN

Jacoby Jones: Late in the game, Jones let a punt drop that he could have made a fair catch on, but instead let it roll from around the 20 down to the 3-yard line. The Chargers lost two yards on three plays and had to punt, giving up valuable field position as Baltimore started on San Diego’s 38. Five plays later, Joe Flacco plunged into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown run, giving Baltimore a 26-23 lead with 4:34 left.

Special teams: Punter Mike Scifres had a nice punt that he spun out on the 3-yard line. But the Chargers finished with minus-2 return yards for the game and Josh Lambo had an extra point blocked.
